Jane Austen addict, Courtney Stone, has an "out of body experience" after finding her fiancé in the arms of her wedding caterer and drowning her sorrows with Absolute. No, literally! Courtney finds herself not only in the body of a woman named Jane Mansfield (I laughed too!), but in another country and another century as well!
Suddenly Courtney/Jane is in the England of Jane Austen, forced to deal with the formal manners of society and the lack of modern conveniences. We are taken into a world where many of the things we take for granted would be considered scandalous!
Enter our hero. Or is he - the handsome, sexy, mysterious Mr. Edgeworth. Courtney/Jane finds herself with sweaty palms and lusty thoughts whenever he appears on the scene. The novel is well written, historically well researched, and takes the reader on a roller coaster ride. I loved it and can't wait for Laurie's next book.
